A large number of female protesters from Dhaka University (DU) brought out a protest procession which paraded the streets of the campus, demanding unconditional release of the quota reform movement activists and ensure a safe campus. 

They also called for a boycott of all classes and exams.

Following demonstrations on Wednesday night at three female dormitories, girls of the university took to the streets on Thursday morning, chanting slogans against imprisonment of university students and demanding their unconditional release.

In the morning, the girls had a per-announced program in front of the Raju Sculpture around 11am which focused on the recent spate of attacks and harassment on students involved with the quota reform movement; but they found the space already occupied by others holding a “general students” banner.

These protesters were demanding an end to unrest in the campus, making calls for “no more protests” and “getting back to studies.”

The protesting students claimed this group is all Chhatra League men, led by those who charged on the students earlier this week, beating them up mercilessly.

The girls gathered near Ruqayyah Hall and brought out a procession, parading Shamsunhar hall, TSC, Arts Faculty, Business Faculty, Bijoy Ekattor hall and the Registrar Building, and then gathered in front of the Central Library.

Chhatra League men started to gather near them and chanted slogans. The girls chanted slogans in response, but they alleged later that at one point the Chhatra League men hurled abuse at them, jeered and even pulled out their phones to take photos of the girls.
